I recently got a postcard from COSTCO that warned me that the 30 pack of Mars candy for Halloween I had purchased back in September MIGHT have had the wrong number or wrongly labelled types of candy inside. And honestly, it took me aback.
Secondly, it's just candy. Who found it so abhorrent & unacceptable that they had to complain to COSTCO to the point that they needed to send out postcards to members to "warn" them?
We bought the 30 pack of full sized candy bars. We had only 6 (six) trick or treaters, and honestly, we were very disappointed to have only 6. We asked the trick or treating children if they preferred Snickers or M&Ms, and gave them the large, full sized candy bar they asked for. Dr Desert Flower took the rest of the left over 24 candy bars to her work, where her colleagues and direct reports kept asking if the candy was 'for some fund raiser?'
If the candy we bought from COSTCO had been contaminated with E-Coli as organic spinach that Southern California COSTCOs had in the past, ok, warn me. If the candy had some serious defect, yes, I want to know. But there might have been an "incorrect number" or a "slightly different mix"? Who cares?? And what indignant COSTCO member thought it necessary to complain enough that COSTCO legal thought they Needed to send out warning post cards to cover their asses?
No apology necessary.
